MAUI PINEAPPLE COMPANY OFFERS PINEAPPLE PLANTATION TOURS

 

Hawaii’s king of fruits is the subject of Maui’s only Hawaiian Pineapple Plantation Tours offered by Maui Pineapple Company, Ltd. With the breathtaking views along the slopes of the West Maui Mountains, the public will tour the plantation of Hawaii’s largest and only pineapple canner.

Led by long-time plantation workers, colorful commentary weaves the history of the area with current facts on ananas (pineapple) in these special 2 hour tours. Participants will ride the yellow company vans into fields being harvested that very day, learn first-hand about the unique growing and harvesting cycle of Hawaii’s "king of fruits," and view some of Maui’s most spectacular scenery. As a momento of their tour, visitors will have the opportunity to pick their own pineapple to take home – an authentic plantation experience.

Unlike any other pineapple company in the world, Maui Pineapple Company, Ltd. grows premier Hawaiian fruit to be canned and to be sold fresh. Their canned pineapple and juice can be found in local supermarkets and bears their special stamp of quality "100% HAWAIIAN U.S.A. ™" In an era when major pineapple companies have moved their canning operations overseas, Maui Pineapple Company remains committed to Hawai’i where the ideal growing conditions make genuine Hawaiian pineapple no ka ‘oi (the best.)

Two Pineapple Plantation Tours will be offered Mondays through Fridays (beginning February 24th,) 9:30 am - 12 noon and 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm. Cost is $26 per person and includes a pineapple to take home. Minimum age is 12 years to participate.

Reservations are recommended by 12 noon the day prior to scheduled tour; walk-ins on space available basis. Participants check-in at the Kapalua Resort Activity Desk located in The Kapalua Villas, across from the Honolua Store.
